SHEFFIELD / BOSTON - Researchers at two universities in Britain and the US have teamed up to create a free forced labour data hub which companies can use to help keep their supply chains free of modern slavery risks.

The collaboration between Laura Murphy, professor of human rights and contemporary slavery at Sheffield Hallam University, and Shawn Bhimani, an assistant professor of supply chain and information management at Northeastern University in Boston, is being funded with a US$275,000 grant from the Laudes Foundation.

Murphy was previously behind a series of research projects uncovering links between alleged forced labour in the Xinjiang region of China, which supplies a fifth of the world's cotton, and global fashion brands and retailers.
